Promoting British Values at Stoneferry Park Primary School
We believe our school is an caring and inclusive learning environment where children deserve the best conditions to allow them to progress.
Schools are required to nurture their pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development and as part of this requirement we are expected to actively promote fundamental British Values.
The government defines these as:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect, tolerance of different faiths and beliefs
The values are reflected throughout our school, including in our ethos, policies and assemblies. Pupils also engage with the values through the curriculum, in ways that are suitable for their age and context.
Our duty to actively promote fundamental British values also means we are responsible for challenging prejudiced or extreme opinions and behaviour.
